Was Lauren Boebert right in saying Christ may have prevented his crucifixion if he owned assault-style weapons?

On Saturday Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado referenced the death of Jesus Christ in a joke about gun rights hinting that Christ may have prevented his crucifixion if he owned assault-style weapons. She also pointed out that Cain killed his brother with a rock not an assaulted riffle. She said it at a Christian event run by the Charis Christian Center so I don't think it was right for her to bring republican politics into religion. Cheers and happy weekend!

    About as right as Marjorie Taylor Green blaming the tampon shortage on transgender men.

    Yeah that was a crazy and dangerous thing to say because it could fuel a hate crime. Cheers and happy weekend! This post was edited by Nanoose at June 17, 2022 5:03 PM MDT

    It's blasphemy.  And shows that she has no idea what she's talking about; just trying to get attention.

    Well hopefully it will be one more thing that will encourage people not to vote republican. Cheers and happy weekend!

    No, she would be wrong. 

    Christ told Peter to put down his sword and then healed the Roman soldier's ear whom Peter had cut.   Jesus also stated He could call upon legions of angels if He wanted but He did not because He was following the Father's will. 

    But IF He had wanted to defend Himself physically from His tyrannical government an AR auto would have been the optimal choice if  it were available. This post was edited by my2cents at June 18, 2022 6:22 AM MDT

    Let us first begin with the premise that nothing Lauren Boebert says is right and go from there. This post was edited by Spunky at June 18, 2022 12:30 PM MDT

    Lauren Boebert is akin to our Peta Credlin. Neo-Fascist and nutty as squirrel poop.
